Wild Harvest

Our dedicated harvesters do not own watches, but rather rely on the sun to determine the start of their day. When they glimpse the first rays above the peaks, they trek up the hillside to begin the day’s harvest. Our harvesting methods are organic and non-commercial, which means that each treasured root is heedfully harvested by hand and treated with care.

Creativity and Innovation

At Afraceuticals, our ultimate goal is to provide creative, effective and sustainable solutions for the nutraceutical industry that are inspired by science, traditional knowledge and the natural world. Our scientific experts follow an innovative process of biomimicry, which involves studying nature’s solutions and then imitating these designs and processes in our product development. We keep up to date with the latest research and, together with renowned universities, we continue to pioneer novel processing techniques and innovate new delivery formats.

Primary Processing

The raw plant material selected must meet or exceed our superior standards for purity and potency. The harvests are then batched according to village, which means that each batch can be traced back to the specific family who harvested it. The plant material is then transported down the mountain passes to our South African processing facility, where they are carefully washed, dried, and milled.

Beyond visual and tactile inspection, thorough tests are conducted to ensure the absence of heavy metal toxicity, chemical contaminants, and microbes.

Distilling the Active

The quality-assured raw material is taken to our cGMP-certified, purpose-built extraction facility, where we carefully craft every drop of the finest extracts.

 

We ensure that our extracts are not only pure, but also potent and soluble. The correct extraction technology, and the ideal concentration ratios, are chosen in accordance with the plant’s specific properties.

GMP (Current Good Manufacturing Practice)

We pledge to maintain the safety and efficacy of our products and comply with all applicable cGMP standards for manufacturing, testing and finished packaging. Our customers receive only the finest, highest quality products available, and we ensure end-to-end quality control processes are in place to consistently meet or exceed our customers’ expectations. All of our products go through comprehensive processes to verify their potency, purity and efficacy.

Drug Master File

Our extracts are then packaged for export, backed by a Drug Master File documenting supported stability and efficacy, ensuring that they have the necessary data to be formulated and registered in any country.
